This is a terrible, awful design. They make you drill holes in the plate which have to be perfect for a square fit. They don't provide screws for the plate - really!! They say it is for white or black but the full cover only comes in black. So if you want to use the full plate cover for a white track you will need to spray paint it it white. This is border line dishonest advertising. We are taking ALL the Hampton Bay tracks and parts back and finding another track design to use. This is one of the worst designs I have ever seen! Avoid if you have a choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Babes No trouble
Okay after reading the reviews I was nervous after selecting this brand for my track lighting. I purchased the track lighting online as the bronze didn't come in the store. Well the only problem I had was I couldn't find the cover plates in bronze. We purchased the black and you can hardly tell as the bronze is a dark brown. We bought four of them and my husband had no trouble installing them. He didn't need the white plate as we don't have new installation we have existing track lighting. It screwed right in over the track and covered the hole where the electric came in the ceiling. Honestly the only trouble we had the one box was missing the black screw so he used the white one and we got out the sharpie!

After installing the track and lights, I discovered the company sells track, lights, and covers in white, but does not sell black end covers. Even tho the box is labeled black and white.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RodW also buy some spray paint if going white
Agree this design is poor for same reasons stated by the other review.
(note the "floating" version does not have the same flawed design as this "end" version)
I chose to use flat-white spray-paint to make the black cover white, and ditched the bottom-plate and small cover altogether (the track holds the connector against the electrical feed).
Don't forget to also paint the little screw for securing the cover.
(I painted the black screw instead of the bare-metal one, since it already was painted, i.e. primed.)
Result looks great with no lifting of the track at the connector-end.
Giving it a poor so they fix the design, or at least begin supplying a white cover.

I'm amazed that there hasn't been any design improvements. Does not sit flush against the ceiling, I guess I'll have to paint the black cover white to hide the hole from the mounting plate to the connector that is very visible. Hampton Bay, Please design a better unit for future buyers of this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JL54634 Hampton Bay is of lower quality than most track components
Junk. Does not come with enough hardware to install it.

This is exactly what I thought it would be, so that my track lights would not have an unsightly box in the middle of them. The color was perfect and it fit on the end of the track beautifully. The only problem was that the electric feed could not be moved due to no clearance under the track! (my error)
I would have loved to use this on my track, as the color was percfect and it should have been part of the track kit, instead of a separate order.

This end-connector piece does not mount flush with the ceiling. Clearly no thought went into the design as the instructions ask you to drill your own holes through the plastic cover. Once you get the whole assembly installed, the track you connect to this connector is pried away from the ceiling by the square piece of plastic. Terrible, terrible design.
